Are these sentences correct:
The littel boy handed Santa a list that said he wanted: a truck, a train, and a million dollars.
Her mind flew so quickly-she had so much to remember-that she forgot to stop at the light
~~correct the spelling of "little"
~~delete the colon after "wanted"
Be sure to read the whole explanation, including when NOT to use a colon.
~~use a dash, not a hyphen, after "quickly" and again after "remember" -- if you're not clear on the difference, look at what I just typed (word space hyphen hyphen space word).
